2013 Bridal Makeup Trends – Mass Appeal TV spot
It was a pleasure to be asked once again to appear as a local makeup expert on WWLP’s Mass Appeal – here is my segment from Friday, 9/28/12:
The “No Makeup” Look
As Calvin Klein famously said, “The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.” This look is very hot on the runways right now and the key is perfect, glowing skin, with some subtle contouring to bring out the features, but keeping the look very bare and very natural. This is perfect for brides who don’t like to wear a lot of makeup but still want to look great in their pictures.
Accentuating One Feature
For example, a beautiful bold lip! Keep the rest of the look soft – very natural eyes, soft blush in the same color family – a monochromatic lip & cheek is very modern.
The Smoky Eye
The smoky eye has been reinvented, and it’s not all about black & grey anymore. Earthtones kicked up with a metallic like bronze or copper look amazing, or you can even bring in some purples, or sage greens – as long as you blend the colors well and use shades that complement your skintone, you can absolutely wear color in a tasteful and timeless way.
